PeanutButter Reindeer Cookies


Peanut Butter Cookie Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Decor Ingredients:

  • Mini pretzels
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Red M&M’s


Preheat the oven to 350.  Stir together dry ingredients.  In a mixer cream butter, shortening, and peanut butter until smooth.  Add the sugars and keep mixing until well blended.  Add eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla.  Add flour in two parts and mix until combined.

Shape dough into balls and place an inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.  While they are baking or before, cut the pretzels into “antlers” We took a paring knife and cut the rounded outer parts of the pretzel off. When you take the cookies out of the oven immediately place the pretzels in the top of the warm cookie for the antlers. Put the red M&M in the center for the nose and mini chocolate chips for the eyes.  Let cool and enjoy!
